Being a child is something that we all wish we could be again but once u grow u can never go back, it feels like yesterday i was only 10 and today am 24

One morning in my childhood i woke up feeling like i wasn't in my body , my nipples were itchy and swollen , protruding out of my night gown like jelly beans in a plastic bag , my hips felt like they were growing out of my skin and my stomach felt like a candy factory grinding my intestines into candy, i was in so much pain i felt like breathing was a problem , worse off i couldn't move cause every time i tried it hurt and sadly i had to go to the bathroom having had so much liquid the previous night, so i forced myself out of my blankets cause i felt like the liquid was licking out of vagina. I quickly got into the bathroom. As i by passed the mirror i couldn't help but notice two extremely large pimples on my beautiful forehead , i sat on the toilet sit n eased myself. Oh God that felt so good as the pain reduced and i felt much better with every liter of urine i released. Hoping my stomach only hurt because i had kept that pee for so long i grabbed tissue in my hands and tried to clean myself, but just before i could throw the toilet paper into the toilet i noticed the colour of my urine had changed , it seemed extremely red. Having seen such a site right under me , i began to think my intestines where truly being grinded. In shock , i touch my woman hood and when i saw the blood , i couldn't contain myself . i lost it , "this is the end, " i shouted "my death is here." I tried to scream but my voice just couldn't come out , i was running out of breath , my knees felt weak. Just when i was about to fall to the ground , mum walked into the bathroom and helped me into the shower , she smiled at me and said " my girl has finally grown" in shock i looked at her feeling like she had just punched me in the face . "Mum ! Wat are u saying, am in pain and u are there smiling at me , really ! " i said in a nervous tone, " u clean up and meet me in your room, " she said leaving the bathroom, i cleaned up my mess and joined her in my room. She was sitting on my bed , " how do u feel after that shower" she asked , " i feel way much better now thank u, " i said , " take a sit right next to me , i have to tell you something important " she said pointing her finger at the space next to her, what my mother told me that day change my mind set and view of woman hood and growth, she got hold of my hands and said "Jenna your life as a girl and a woman has just began, what you're feeling, what you've experienced is simply a purification process from being a girl to a young lady soon to become a woman, what has happened just proves that you are a jem in the hands of who ever will marry you because it is a proof of your fertility, your real value and purpose on earth as a woman on earth is to be able to have children and this shows that you are fertile and that's good news in fact great news at that. U just started your period which means you are growing now and you have to be very careful about how you run your life from now on. If any man or boy tries to sleep with you now , they can easily ruin your life and make u pregnant , take care of yourself , treasure your self and your fruit for your husband , this is one of the things that show your true value , now whip your tears , u just became a woman," She smiled. As she said those words to me , i began to understand that i was growing up and to be honest with you it felt good , instead of crying i smiled and from then on , every time am on my period and i go through so much pain , i know that am still precious , that am being purified and that am growing up each and every day , Growth is a scary thing to think of but when it comes , it comes with lots of gifts to look up to. We all have to grow at some point right, so what the heck , lets just enjoy what comes with growth .
